Comparative Analysis of GameSalad and GameMaker

Seth Morris

This senior project will be based on the creation of one video game but on two platforms. The game design and functionality will be made first, however; because of limiting time constraints the game will be simple and basic. An outline will then be made for the game screens and various components of the gaming process.

After design is complete, creating the game on two different game maker platforms that are new to the user, GameSalad and GameMaker; two of the world's leading game making platforms. During the game making process comparative analysis of learning curves, ease of use, functionality highlights, background-coding processes will be done.

The end of this project will produce knowledge of two of the most popular game making platforms on the market and detailed analysis comparing the two as well as the creation of two fully functional games that could be used for future work.
